Interview with A Fox Pest Pro

Maybe you'd like to know what you would want to know from a Pest Pro Technician who has been in the industry since 2007.

We had the opportunity to talk to Jason Riddick, whose team services the Virginia Beach area and the surrounding region for Fox Pest Control.

You might find it interesting to gain a little insight into the life of a pest professional. We talked to Jason Riddick about pests he likes and dislikes, an intense story about rats and bees, a few tips homeowners in the Virginia Beach area should know, and his personal insight into the company he works for.

Field Stories from a Pest Professional

We asked Jason Riddick, "Do you have any Interesting or Scary Stories from the Field?"

"Oh, yeah, probably like 40,000. [It was a] downstairs basement, finished basement. Bees were flying around, [so we] started pulling insulation. Once we pulled it, we round rat droppings. Bees were stinging and killing rats. [We] got rid of the rats, they were dead, and then we had to kill the bees. So ... fun stuff."

It's comforting to know that even in a disgusting and intense situation in which bees are attacking and killing rats inside the walls of a finished basement, there is someone in your neighborhood who knows what to do and isn't afraid to face the problem directly.

When the Fox Pes Pros come to your home, we aren't afraid to get the job done.

A Pest Pro's Favorite and Least Favorite Pest

When we interviewed multiple pest pros who work for Fox Pest Control, many of them talked about their favorite and least favorite pests to treat.

"I don't like maggots," admitted Jason. "That's just me personally because I had a really bad camping trip when I was eight years old."

Jason didn't dive too much into that story, but he did share with us his favorite pest to treat.

"Ants are cool, they're easy," he said. "People can see instant results once I put the gel down or the bait down, even spray. They can see right away that the problem's probably going to be taken care of if not before I leave."

The first priority for Jason and his team when they come to treat a pest situation is that customers feel satisfied about their service. We work to restore your peace of mind.

Pest Pro Tips for Homeowners

Jason has been in the business for a long time. He manages several teams of professional pest managers throughout the Virginia Beach area. He has dealt with pest problems for home and business owners for nearly fifteen years.

We asked him what advice or tips he would share with customers or potential customers.

"Tell you pest professional as much as possible," he said. "Take your time … explain to them what kind of problems you're seeing."

When a Fox Pest Pro comes to your door, you can rest assured that the problem will be taken care of. Each time one of Fox's professionals treats your home or business, the property will receive a thorough and careful treatment.

"And let us talk to the kids, too," he continued. "The kids are close to the ground, they're playing with toys, they see more of the bugs than you do."

We ensure no detail goes unnoticed, and we won't allow any pest to go untreated.

All About Fox

Before Jason began to work for Fox in 2014, he worked with another pest control company. We asked him what he would like to say about Fox.

"For the first seven years," he said, "from '07 to '14, I worked for another company, and I liked them, but I had some issues.

"Fox is literally … everything I would have changed about that first company. Best company I could imagine to work for.

"I love Fox and I love everybody that works here."

With Fox, it is our mission to Build and Strengthen Relationships, which we believe is the most important core value a company can implement.

When you call Fox Pest Control, you aren't just hiring a company to take care of pests. It's not about the pests. It's about the people.

When you think pest control, think Fox Pest Control. Call Fox before 2 p.m., and you could receive service the same day. No Bugs. Simply Better.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
